Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning


ALL DENTAL METALS CAN BREAK DOWN AND CHANGE DUE TO THE EFFECTS OF CHEWING AND THE PASSAGE OF TIME.

Patients may be tested to determine their sensitivity to dental materials that may already be in the mouth, and prior to getting new dental restorations. Although symptoms may vary, no one escapes the ravages of mercury poisoning.

The symptoms are wide ranging and debilitating. Children, however, are more vulnerable than adults. Pregnant women should be aware that mercury can have a negative effect on the fetus.  Because symptoms may appear at different times in different people, it makes sense for everyone to know that if you have amalgam (fillings), you may now or eventually have symptoms of mercury poisoning.
